Purchasing Cards: Level II / Level III Data

Merchant Focus can assist you to qualify for the lowest rates for all types of Purchasing Cards, and we specialize in Large Tickets.

Purchase Cards (also called Procurement Cards, ProCards, P-Cards, Purchasing Cards or just pcards) are specialized Visa, MasterCard or American Express card systems that focus on the requirements of business-to-business and Government commerce with the following features:

  • Specialized credit/charge cards that are centrally billed to the organization
  • Can be set with effective user-configurable transaction and financial controls to manage usage
  • Cardholders granted authority to place orders directly with suppliers
  • Cash disbursement to suppliers made through the banking system
  • Reporting / system management software provided to customer by card-issuing bank to manage purchase, accounting and supplier information

Increasingly, businesses and government agencies are relying on purchasing cards to compensate their service providers and suppliers. Businesses benefit by receiving their funds quickly and by winning competitive bids and government contracts where purchasing cards are the required form of payment. The downside, however, is the
increased costs associated with receiving these payments compared to accepting checks.

Does your company typically deal with business, corporate or government GSA purchasing cards? If so, you can benefit from lower processing fees for Visa & MasterCard transactions from Merchant Focus by submitting Level 2 or Level 3 data (Level II / Level III).
